SPECIAL NOTE- 4th and 3rd Graders
Great Falls Basketball uses a grade-based placement system and does not permit House League players to play up or play down in the House league based on age, size, or subjective factors including skill level, scoring ability, ball handling, prior experience, etc.

Players of unusual size or who possess unusually strong talent should consider trying out for the 5th Grade Select program or the Fourth Grade Developmental program.  If a third or fourth grade player does not make a 5th grade select team, they can try out for the 4th grade developmental program.
